In the beginning, when Dulce goes down into the basement, she carries an oil lamp. The lamp, which is the only source of light, casts a clear shadow on the wall, indicating that another light source is creating the light. See more »
It's a nice suspense thriller but it also has an intense dramatic tension!
What initially seems to be just an AMITYVILLE rip-off is in fact an excellent movie that has almost nothing to do with that film. Except the fact that it's about a house LA CASA DEL FIN DE LOS TIEMPOS has a totally different plot, and it's a very good and imaginative one in my perspective!
It's mostly a suspense thriller but it also has an intense dramatic tension in a very well built plot. Along the movie we watch what happened in two different periods, 1981 and 2011, and the ending is absolutely dramatic, but amazing! I appreciated the way this story was built, because it's like a slow burner, creating suspense, and then, in the end, it clarifies everything, in a convincing and remarkable final disclosure.
This movie surprised me a lot because I was expecting an average horror thriller, in the line of AMITYVILLE, as told, but it was a lot better than that, mixing horror, suspense and drama in a fabulous way!
I watched this Venezuelan suspense thriller (claimed to be the first one in this country! If is that so, I have to congratulate them!) in FANTASPORTO - a film festival from my hometown - and I easily score it 9/10! Excellent surprise!
